Great set of spare life jackets. Was out with a large group and a friend pulled this out of his boat as a set of spares. I purchased a set for my boat when I got home. I like that they are more than the normal red spare PFD and can be used for water sports. They may not be quite as comfy as a nice neoprene vest, but they are compact to store and very adjustable and they are not uncomfortable.

These life vests are advertised and specified for adults but are way too small for even an average size male. The specs say up to a 52 inch chest, but I have a 42 inch chest and feel like I just put on a child's vest. These should be advertised as children's vests and sold as such. The pricing was attractive and the quality was reflective of the pricing, but the small sizing made them unusable, so I returned them to the store. I'd purchased two sets for spares in my boats, but I'll look elsewhere for that now.

      I like the way these vests are made and the carry bag that keeps them handy. Unknowingly the colors blend well with boat interior, and are quite comfortable.Have already recommended West Marine to friends and have made other purchases myself.

                  I bought these as spares for a Christmas Ship event on the waterfront. They were fantastic! Most everyone was able to put themselves in these very easily and they were very grateful to have a nice jacket to wear on the docks, which can be the most dangerous place for novice boaters.

                    We grabbed the bag of PFD's as a nicer option for visitors on the boat. I tried one on for a day and found that I had to loosen it up a bit - but overall it felt comfortable. I am a slim 6' male and was told it looked tiny on my tall frame - but it still felt fine and I imagine would help me float.
